Addicted to Billy Wilder

Double Indemnity

The man’s writing, in a word, smoldered. Even something as mundane as an insurance salesman selling accident insurance to a lonely wife became a thing so tense, and so dramatic, that you couldn’t tear your eyes away from the screen as the scenes unfolded.

If you’ve not watched Double Indemnity, or happened to miss Sunset Boulevard, or perhaps you’ve never heard of Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina, or Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch, then you’ve got some movies to Netflix. These films all have one thing in common, and that’s the taut, sharp writing of Billy Wilder.
